PDS Group

PDS Group is a globally established supplier of petrotechnical software and technical consulting services to the Exploration and Production Industry.

While actively expanding our operations to adjacent sectors such as Utilities and Natural Resources, we remain fully committed to our traditional markets, working with industry leaders in Exploration and Production to reinvent petrotechnical software and break new ground in digital transformation.

At the heart of our company is the drive to innovate, to excel in our chosen fields. And that means we think deeper, search wider and fight harder to realise our goals, and those of our clients. We draw inspiration from the endeavours of others, from those whose standout contributions to science, technology and engineering represent true pinnacles of human achievement. And we hope that the contributions we make might, in some small way, inspire others. You'll find some of our heroes and their stories featured on our website.

Software

As specialists, we are in business to develop the best possible software solutions for our customers’ most difficult problems. Whether you are looking to develop something wholly unique, or optimise your existing workflows with our SaaS products, you’ll find PDS technology delivers a great experience.

Consulting

Need some help with your workflows, or a review of your existing Petrel models? We have a team of geoscientists ready to help you with reservoir and basin modelling.

We also offer consulting services for digital transformation projects: systems integration, big data analytics, artificial intelligence, and much more.

About Us

At PDS, we aspire to be masters of our chosen craft, not just practitioners. We turn the latest scientific and engineering thinking into innovative software products that help our clients push the envelope of industry best practices, and solve real world problems in fundamentally better ways.
